Le Nez du Vin
Le Nez du Vin translates to "make scents of wine," and this cleverly titled company helps its customers do exactly what the name promises. Based on a best-selling book by Jean Lenoir, Le Nez du Vin aroma kits are designed to help train our noses and brains to identify a wide array of different scents. Lenoir describes the process as being similar to writing a dictionary in that you're learning a new language where the alphabet is comprised of aromas instead of letters. Most popularly used to identify and isolate common characteristics present in different types of wine, these kits teach users to rely on their sense of smell to narrow down a wine's varietal and region of origin. Choose the kit that corresponds to the kind of wine that intrigues you the most, then sniff through vials containing essences of strawberry, pear and black currant, savory notes such as pepper and smoke, lightly aromatic florals and the sweet scents of licorice, clove and vanilla. Expand your horizons and learn to identify wine faults with a single sniff, or explore the multilayered complexities of other drinks like whiskey and coffee. Just like a muscle, your sense of smell needs to be exercised to operate in peak condition. Regular use of Le Nez du Vin aroma kits will enhance your sense memory and allow you to appreciate your favorite beverages on a whole new level.
